    I'm also curious to hear reviews. In particular, curious to hear if the one bank of $1 VP with 8/5 bonus poker made it over to the new structure with the pay table intact.

    I stopped in for a three hour blackjack session last Sunday. You walk right into the casino from level two of the parking garage. It’s very nice with beautiful lighting fixtures. I must confess that it felt a little too sterile. I like a darker atmosphere when playing table games (just a personal preference). I liked not having to walk far to the restrooms. The food court (Piazza?) did not look appealing to me. The sports book is VERY nice.

    Blackjack players will be happy to hear that the rip-off 6:5 tables that infested Level 2 of the riverboat are gone. I walked past every blackjack table and all had the correct 3:2 payout. The non-smoking table games section up front is quite large; but on slow times it will shut down before they close tables in the smoking section.

    I was pleased with the new casino; I just think it lacks some grit or character.

    Can anyone conform if they kept the $1 8/5 99.17% Bonus Poker that was on the upper deck?

    Hi Bill G.,
    I’ll run over to Caesars sometime Friday afternoon and look for you. I didn’t see any new info at VPFree2 yet.

    i went Saturday evening and saw lines 6-8 deep to get on $15 blackjack tables.Way too crowded. I quickly left and made the drive to Belterra and Rising Star.

    I found some of the 8/5 dollar BP bank machines and they were dropped to 6/5. I was too disgusted to check the other games on the machine. Also, the three play dollar DB machine in the HL room was dropped down but I can’t remember exactly where it fell. The bar tops have the same crappy pay tables that only improve slightly at the dollar level. There are three VP bars: one near the steak house that has some glittery centerpiece which casts a huge glare on the machines, one near a river view performance stage where I couldn’t get served due to all of the walk up traffic, and a third near the sports book and food court. Craps tables were super-packed at ten dollar minimum, I hope that was due to the holidays. The main improvement is the Laurel (Diamond) Lounge which has VP at the bar and an exterior balcony overlooking the woods. It’s a big bright flashy loud casino, but the only improvement is a shorter walk from the hotel and parking lot. Overall the square footage is reduced, and the smoking/non-smoking boundaries are just random signs.

    I went over there on December 14th from 2-4 am and was not impressed with the layout and lack of ambiance: Someone else may have suggested it was sterile and too well lit. I second that motion. I preferred the atmosphere on the boat, by a mile. It also seemed like the floors were dirty with debris all over the carpet wherever I went,

    It may have been the HOLIDAY, but...
    We are LOW rollers and were there on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - all slots were TIGHT! Saw and heard loads of complaints. ALL LIVE roulette were $15 minimum. I think that is crazy (new Casino or not) for a location in the middle of nowhere!!! Always liked to visit when in Louisville to visit relatives, but may have to rethink!

    I just made a non-holiday midweek mid afternoon visit to the newly revamped Caesars Southern Indiana and can report that five dollar minimums were available on Craps, Blackjack and the poker game variants. Roulette was a ten dollar minimum until they opened a second table, after that both tables were fifteen dollar minimum. The dollar machines that previously offered 8/5 BP are now 6/5, with 9/5 JoB, 8/5 BP Dlx, 8/5 DDB, Deuces at 250/200/25/16/13/4/3/2/2/1, and no Double Bonus offered. I eventually found a multi-denomination machine near the sports book that offered dollar 8/5 BP without a progressive. The place was fairly crowded for the time of day, but crowds were nowhere near what they were over the holiday. I earned a few points on Senior Wednesday and was rewarded with a voucher good for one food court entree, about a twelve dollar value. While playing on the floor I had a hard time escaping cigarette smoke and heavy perfume, I would have expected better from a brand new ventilation system. Still not warming up to the atmosphere. I sat at the sports book bar where I could hear the loudspeaker music as well as three different television shows simultaneously. At least at that bar I could see the vp screen without glare.

    I agree the smoke smell there is ridiculous considering it’s a new space. It’s pretty but I just don’t think it’s big enough. I felt pretty cramped in there.

    Other than being new and shiny, the new place sounds like a downgrade in a lot of respects. I'll be down there in September for the Louder Than Life festival, got my room booked at Caesars already. I wonder how much might change between now and then.
